Hot Rod Girl


Published 1956
Topics Action, Drama, Romance


When his younger brother, Steve (Del Erickson), is killed racing a hot-rod, Jeff Northup (John Smith) blames himself for the accident since he had built the car for his brother and had encouraged him to race it, with other boys on a special course provided by police detective Ben Merrill (Chuck Connors), who is working to reduce the city's hot-rod fatalities by providing supervision for the dangerous hobby.
Jeff withdraws from participating in races on Merrill's course and, without his leadership, revert to racing on the streets. "Bronc" Talbott (Mark Andrews), a newcomers, makes a play for Jeff's girlfriend, Lisa Vernon (Lori Nelson). Eventually, the taunting-Talbott forces Jeff into a race which results in the death of a bicycling child, and evidence seems to indicate Jeff was at fault.

Reviews

Reviewer: kingfast - - December 2, 2011
Subject: Not bad
The title is a little misleading as the girl only drives her T-Bird in a drag race against a Jaguar XK120 in the opening shot.But if you like 50's culture and cars you will enjoy this modest offering. At times the dialogue amongst the young folk is quite sharp anbd antertaining. They mostly hang out in the local diner. A brooding newcomer enters the scene upsetting the status quo, with his flash car and challenging the locals. Some hot rod car action.
